How's planning going?

i'm probably behind on my t-do list, but items i've checked off are the photographer(s), reception site, picked and asked my bridesmaids, and narrowed down ceremony sites.


i would have to say what i am looking forward to the most is making my wedding dress, shopping with my mom, food tasting and my many diy projects. :D

Yay!! It's so nice to be able to talk to the girls that are also getting married at the same time!!


 


I have pretty much the big things (dress, photographer, ceremony/reception venue, caterer, DJ, etc) checked off the list.  Still have a few DIY projects to complete.


 


I'm least excited to decorate the reception site.  I'm basically working with nothing so it'll be interesting to see how it comes together.


 


I'm most excited for the big day in general.  Being able to share it with my family and hubby.

I am super far behind.  Stressing out to the point of maddness, and have had plenty of 'zilla moments!


Ugh!

We have booked a venue (stryker Sonoma Vineyard), photographer, gotten bids on caterers, found my dress and my Mom's, and are going to Sonoma in less than two weeks to meet with other vendors.  Lots more to do, but after the trip most will be decided! I can't wait!!!
